USAMRMC New Products and Ideas
The United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) utilizes the New Products and Ideas (NPI) system as a mechanism to have visibility and evaluate new products and ideas, currently configured or in development, that support our mission. The NPI provides a means for our subject matter experts to assess these products and ideas, evaluate their applicability to USAMRMC's mission, and provide feedback to the submitter. It provides the vendor an opportunity to showcase their product or idea without needing to travel to Fort Detrick and without giving anyone an unfair competitive advantage.
Submission to the NPI is not a substitute where other vehicles are more appropriate, such as responding to Requests for Proposals (RFPs), the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) or Program Announcements (PAs), nor does it take the place of a pre-proposal that may be required by a BAA or PA.
USAMRMC does not award contracts, provide research grants, or offer other forms of financial support through the NPI. Likewise, USAMRMC does not purchase or obtain programs, services or products through the NPI. All requirements and funding opportunities are advertised through fedbizopps.gov and grants.gov. Please visit those sites to view current solicitations and announcements.

Frequently Asked Question
May I be awarded a contract or grant as a result of my NPI submission?
NPI submissions are not proposals and no awards can be made as a result of submitting to the NPI. Research proposals must be submitted through the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) or Program Announcements (PAs), as appropriate, and proposals for equipment, supplies and services must be submitted in response to Requests for Quotes (RFQs) or Requests for Proposals (RFPs). The NPI Website is not an entry portal to these funding vehicles.
